Glitter Butterflies

Want to add some subtle sparkle to your Christmas tree? Buy a box of paper butterflies and a tube of glitter from the craft store and in minutes you can transform them into showstoppers. Butterflies are usually sold in multi-colored sets of six. Make sure that each butterfly has a wire attached to the body. Brush on a solid layer of Elmer's glue and then dust with the glitter of your choice - voila! Allow to dry, wire to a branch and you have a masterpiece to punch up your ornament collection. Glitter & wire the extra butterflies to special packages - your friends will faint! Also, check out the December issue of House Beautiful - they showcase 101 ornaments for your tree and where to buy them - I love it.
